to get where we are today. i would say the first milestone started back in 2005 bh the city adopted the transbay redevelopment plan that covered part of this plan area but focused on properties along folsom street that were transfer prd the state of california to the city and all this was to the ends of building the new transbay transit center and the downtown neighborhood, at that time and coming out of that plan effort, the city in the inner act si effort led by the mayor's office commissioned a report that recommended the creation aof a new broader area plan that covered a broader area around the transbay transit center to consider the land use patterns in the future of downtown growth in the context of the new transit center project. so, we engage ined that public process for several years, culminating in a draft plan in 2009 and towards the end of 2011, a draft eir was published on the plan and then this may, the planning commission certified the eir and adopted the plan, following that the, the board approved the plan and the mayor signed it and they are not reflective, so the
. >> reporter: what do you want the community to get out of this? >> first and foremost, make sure people understand the city has taken steps to make sure this never happens again in the city. we are conscious when people call us about concerns when drug dealers or people are doing things to disrupt the community, we are anticipating what action we can take when we have the matters. those are the kinds of things we want the community to understand. >> reporter: i understand you were instrumental in the monument. what is going through your minds as we honor them tonight. what do you want the community to know moving forward? >> reporter: it's a good feeling to know we turned this house that was a modest $12,000 in value after it was burnt, and scorched at the time, and we put a million two to make sure the place remain in tact for the memory of the dawson family. it creates environment for children, to have a safe haven throughout the city. we would like to do more throughout the city. that's the goal. >> reporter: thank you for joining us this morning. we appreciate it. that event is at 6

space all across the city. >> george, how would you like to respond? >> i would like to respond first by saying thanks, richard, for inviting me. what has happened to the park system where groups throughout san francisco are now getting together to say no to another park bond. why is this happening? is the park system really being effective in san francisco? the same national trust for public grants, which matt just mentioned, we are one of the best-funded parks in the country. yet you see so many parks with problems. you see so many people that are having problems with the recreation and parks department as they never listen to neighborhood concerns, they don't deal with neighborhood concerns, and what's happened is we feel that we have paid for these parks and we feel like we paid 100 percent. the mayor's office has stopped this payment and the city keeps asking the people who live in san francisco, the voters, to pass bonds to continue it support the park system. the 2012 bpbld was originally scheduled for 2014 and it has been moved up. about 41 percent of the 2008 bond, 73 mi
at projects and impacts on parks. >> john from the city attorney's office, i've had a chance to review the letter and i would just like to make a few points about that. the first is that the letter sort of co-mingles what are common terms that are used both in the environmental analysis and ceqa process as well as in section 295, this is something the commissions grapple with. every time a shadow decision comes before it, but the terms of what's considered significant and insignificant under ceqa or adverse impacts under ceqa are different decisions, different analysis, different factors come into play. when those sixes are decisions are made in the process of 295 analysis prop k, so i wanted to point that out. i think the staff memo that you received does touch on this briefly as well. i did also want to point out that commissioner sugaya raised another city attorney opinion, i just wanted to point out that addressed sort of a different question than the issue that is are before you today, so i don't think that that has bear -- bearing on today's decision, but i wanted to point out s
insight as to why? two years i could get. 10, really? >> it's 10 years from when we received our first application and two years from the community planning process. but basically it's because of this, because we get so many applications throughout the city and for every application we get we turn it into this big process. so when we receive applications we put them in a ranked list of priorities. you have it meet a certain base threshold of speeding and collisions to be what's called accepted as a traffic calming application, yeah, we think a traffic calming measure would be appropriate to address that issue. but then we get so many that we have to prioritize them, so there's some locations that may meet that minimum threshold but there's other locations that rank more highly and it's an on-going process so as we keep getting new applications if it ranks more highly than one from a few years ago, it will keep sifting out to the bottom of the list. >> so what is the method that you use to keep track of the accidents or the collisions? >> well, the collision data comes in from police
very unique for the city and right now where he have to get the nod from the nfl first. >> just like the team, san francisco will be competing against other nfl franchises. because the league likes shiny new stadiums, this venue might be on the short list. as the host city, san francisco's hotels, restaurants and tourist hot spots would be filled. >> we know in cities like new orleans and new york, others who have hosted super bowls, they mean something in between 300 to $500 million in economic impacts for the region. >> so a san francisco becomes host city, where does that leave santa clara? >> you come to play. >> the mayor has been in talks with his san francisco counter part about the super bowl bid and says it's a collaboration that will pay off for his city as well. >> remember, when it last came to san francisco in the 80s? it played stanford, keeping things into perspective. this is going to be a bay area thing he says santa clara will be the epicenter, 49ers ceo made it clear san francisco is the team's home. >> that is where nine yea year -- niners came from and everything

, with radio, with newspapers with magazines, anyone who covers city business who has -- who covers anything to do with events and activities and people, that take place in this city. so i'm very much concerned that this is - is -- could be a first amendment issue with how this is implemented that -- because it is a little strange that this is being handled by a transit agency, rather than the police or a city hall department that does this. so i'd appreciate it if you have these questions answered or that you've gotten full support from small outfits that don't have a lot of money or just a few employees versus others such as the chronicle that have lots of money. th9- you. >> chairman nolan: thank you. next speaker. >> david pilpel is the last person who has turned in a speaker card. >> david pilpel on 10.6. i won't repeat comments from 10.5 but will state this is an oral request for public information under the sunshine ordinance for all documents old0+bú definitions of the medin general. but i just want to conclude again by saying that there's no explanation as to why the be used to ex
first reported by the "washington post." the city says the settlements were necessary to avoid litigation. >>> the d.c. council will begin to consider a change to those controversial speed cameras. today, councilmember tommy wells will formally introduce legislation that will reduce the amount of the camera fine. right now, speed camera tickets can be as much as $250. if you don't pay within $30, that fine doubles. >> there needs to be a fine for speeding because it is dangerous. if we create certainty that you'll be caught, we reduce this. traffic fatalities have gone down. we know they work but there is no correlation to how high the fines are for speeding. >> reporter: red light camera fines won't change but councilman wells hopes this move will help eliminate the suspicion that cameras are only meant to make money for the district. >>> a collision on the campaign trail involving the first lady michelle obama. >> don't worry. she is okay but there was a bit of a fender bender that left a few people in the hospital. we're checking more headlines coming up next. 
from the treasure island island authorities and michael to present for the city and county of san francisco. we will have presentations first. we may have questions from colleagues, including myself. and then we will open up for public comment. and this is a time to give feedback and also questions and concerns to us on the board. and then we'll continue the conversation after that. i also want to acknowledge that many of our residents have been writing to us about the outages, the electricity outages that have been going on the island. well, that's not the subject of the hearing today, i just want to let you know that that's something that our office is working on. we're convening the public utilities commission and the city administrator's office and tida to see what we can do to support the aging infrastructure through which our electricity runs through. as many of you know, this is the infrastructure that -- well, actually we haven't inherited yet, but it's currently owned by the u.s. navy. it's aging. they haven't put in the investment to improve it mainly because when the ne
around our campus. it will also help us meet the city's goal of of 20% by 2020. we did a survey last fall and we found when asked why people chose not to ride their bike to campus there were three primary reasons. first was theft, concerned about bikes being stolen. we will build covered secured parking on campus. second was safety, fear of riding in city traffic, especially -- on fell and oak, the major arteries that people have to ride or cross to get to campus. the third reason was hills. we know the wiggle addresses that. we're trying to address the theft issue on our campus. but the safety issue is one that you can really help us with. last -- a month ago we had a orientation and many parents were bringing students to campus. i was out tabling and chairing with parents what we're trying to do with supporting students bicycling to and from campus. painchts raised concern about safety of their children, didn't feel safe allowing children to have bicycles on our campus. i think again by taking this step and moving forward with it i think what is an amazing project and one that's been ca
a decade ago, a lawsuit forced our city to use a business tax that is problematic for many reasons. first and foremost, it is a tax on jobs. every time a local employer hires someone there is a business payroll tax that's levied on that person. secondly, it is a tax that is only levied on 10 percent of all businesses and many of these are small businesses who have really been asking for reform for many many years. currently we are the only city in the state of california that uses this business payroll tax. our city government, we spent 6 months earlier this year in conversations with many leaders within the community to propose a change to a so-called gross receipts tax, which is superior on a number of levels. first and foremost, it's a tax on revenue. it's a tax on profit. it's also a progressive tax, unlike the current flat tax it's a tax that exempts small businesses that have revenues of less than a million dollars but it also increases taxes for our most successful and our largest businesses. then the last thing i will mention, it is a tax that will help to recoup the revenues t
-cause hearing of any task alleging, "a," willful violations by city officers and city department heads, and "b," nonwillful violations by elected officials and department heads. >> that's good. >> otherwise we know how we got to this set of questions. otherwise people that pick it up for the first time will say, what is the difference between those two expectations. why are they separate. and we can separate them when there is a consequence that is different. but i think it tangles you up as it currently stands. >> commissioner renne. >> i agree with commission studley, that to combine "a" and "c" into one "a," make it "a." >> or "b." i was putting willful first because it's more severe. >> you would do willful first? >> because it's a higher order. >> i would make what is now "a" and "c" read, nonwillful violations by elected officials, department heads and city officers and employees. and that gets them all. and then say willful violations by city officers. and i agree it's confusing and your paren probably takes care of it. rather than a paren, i may say willful violations by city officers
senior editor, janeane. thank you for being here. >> my pleasure. >> the first spot is santa fe, new mexico. >> it's the city unexpected you don't expect to go to this little mountain town have spas, art galleries, five star restaurants, it's a beautiful escape to relax and rejuvenate. my hotel pick is the inn spa at lower raid d lower raid doe. >> you can stay in the hotel that's all you need but there are so many things to explore and do. >> walking tours museums and a lot of art. >> the virginia wine country we heard a lot about california wines in the sonoma valley. virginia is the place to go. >> absolutely. california may be the obvious choice. virginia wine country has over 200 wineries. it has a deep history in wine making. they were actually named wine enthusiasts as one of the ten best travel wine destinations in 2012. it's a really great option. it's a lot of beautiful small properties to stay at. my pick is the boars head inn. a beautiful property. you can venture out in all of these different wine trails. rates from 160 a night in the fall. the proximity to washington, d
is going on here, but let me get anton in first. you're a shareholder of citi? >> i am, indeed. >> what's your next move? how do you see it? >> i'm going continue to hold. i think michael o'neil has a long history of creating valued companies he's been with. i think the transition here is important. michael corbat is very well respected by the regulators. the process is so critical because citi really generates a ton of capital. i think the ability to return some capital through buy backs, through increased dividends is critical. i think the upside to citi has been kind of, you know, sped up here. i think vikram was doing a lot of the right things, but the regulators did not like him. >> you've been waiting for a dividend too. they couldn't pay a dividend after failing the stress test. as a shareholder, are you frustrated? does it make sense it was time for him to go? >> well, i don't think it was time for him to go, but unfortunately the relationship historically was very bad with the regulators, particularly sheila bear, who really embarrassed him by what she wrote in the book about h
be kind of -- the people that oppose this might be forgetting big picturotzc things here. city of san francisco has a transit first policy, that means$r; obtaining rights for anything other than the private automobile which includes bicyclists and we know thatg:n plan. the point is if you're eliminating parking as a reason that it's not good forkl8sn cars you've got to realize sfmta has reached out to create a newm÷ parking program for residential parking in the area, there's a lot of free and easy parkingkug in my opinion because i can find parking for a suburban that i use2
'm going to take the opposite tact. i think the civil grand jury needs to caution itself. this is the first report i have seen where they have started analyzing private business practices. i think the civil grand jury should be about auditing city government. they are now geting into private business. i have some concerns about that, particularly when it's volunteers who frankly are not private business owners and don't necessarily know it. and these concerns really started to grow beyond just getting into private business affairs. the civil grand jury exercising legal analyses and providing legal opinion, which was the biggest concern that i had with their report last year on park merced. all of a sudden you have a report that has the stamp of the superior court and not one member of civil grand jury was an attorney and yet they offer a legal opinion. i think the civil grand jury in a sense needs to check itself and make sure it gets back to its original mission of auditing city government and focusing on all practices and refrain from fashioning itself as a city-attorney or refrain from b
. remember during the ldc debt crisis in the '80s with citi. citi was one of the first banks in china. the question is, can you turn that into a real stable and profitable franchise? every other quarter we've had noise in their earnings and balance sheet and i think as an analyst i've always wanted to see them make this business run a little bit quieter, if you will. even the write-off of smith barney, that's an ugly thing because it says they didn't make money on that business and in order to sell it, they had to take a loss. >> you know, jim cramer is on the phone, too. jim, i saw what you tweeted about pandit leaving after a terrific quarter which is worrisome. how should we read this? >> i'm listening to mr. whalen and all well and good, you know, pandit finally got it right. this was an absolutely terrific quarter, there was so much that was good here, international was absolutely terrific, you had very good net interest margin. you know, i got to be really blunt about this. i don't know what the heck is going on here. havens i've known since when i did a ton of business with mor
. at the first meeting we developed goals for both the community and the city around second street. those goals include improving safety along the corridor for all users, providing a more attractive pedestrian environment, providing a dedicated bicycle facility and facilitating muni operations for both the 10 and the 12. and on the bicycle facility i'd like to point out although second street is an important bicycle route in the south of market area, on the southern end it connects to the port's blue greenway and the bay trail which runs through district 10 and on the north it connects to east-west bicycle routes that take bicyclists into districts tw and -- 2 and 5 as well. so it's really a key bicycle corridor for the city. at our community meeting in may, we also reviewed existing conditions of second street. there were over 100 people that attended so we broke up into small groups and those groups identified likes and dislikes along the corridor. we also developed two cross sections for second street. they developed two because although the right of way is consistent from market all the
